David Shuey Bio
David Shuey has been involved with the Arthritis Foundation for 15 years and is the Immediate Past Chair of our national Board of Directors. David turned his passion into the “ride of a lifetime,” when he cycled across the U.S. in 2009, to increase awareness and raise funds for arthritis. With his diagnosis of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, he was determined to avoid his mother Marcie’s fate – wheelchair-bound at age 70 and living with progressive disability. David’s journey took him across 3,600 miles and 14 states, telling his story along the way. Mr. Shuey sees two important priorities for the Arthritis Foundation – renewed focus on our role as a Consumer Health Organization as well being an organization with a transformational research agenda, moving towards better treatment and an eventual cure.
